to hawaii. where he said look, we have to scale back expectations. basically just extend middle class tax cuts. don't worry about the rates for everyone else. secondly extend unememployment insurance for about two million people who will be losing it a few days from now at the end of the year. finally he refer to possibility of smaller bit ever spending cuts. not major entitlement rerecall to. not major cuts to medicare like had been on the table in so-called plan a, the $4 trillion debt deal he and john boehner had been talking about for weeks. so we might see a small bit of spending cuts just to stave off the sequester, the massive amount of spending cuts that will kick in at the beginning of the year to harm the pentagon and other agencies. if they are getting anything, there are low expectations but if they get anything it will be a very small deal, something much smaller than they have been talking about for weeks, jon. jon: there aren't too many people these meetings. so a little hard to get an assessment, what is your idea, what is your best, yeah, assessment i guess how things are

in the new year after the president's back from hawaii. >> there are other complications. let's look at the calendar, senator kerry is chairing the public hearings on benghazi, and how we were talking about earlier, how awkward is that? he's chairing the hearings that take a part the state department, the department he's expected to be chairing, if confirmed. his own panel will have to confirm him. he's in conversations today with his colleagues and senator corker said on the show today earlier, as you heard, we can't hold a confirmation hearing, we won't, john kerry, my friend and colleague, as they say in the senate, until hillary clinton shows up, and she is out sick. so this means hearings in january on benghazi, too. >> that was a great question that you asked senator corker, isn't this awkward, and you're reporting on benghazi has been so remarkable since the very first day i remember you stayed up all night that night, now we're seeing with this report what an unfortunate way, uncharacteristic way, for secretary clinton to go out. she's had this fantastic run, unquestionably,

, but obama always has his vacation delayed. i was covering the president a couple years ago and my hawaii trip got delayed a couple days. life went on. >> you were not happy. >> i was, you know, i was not happy, it's true, craig. >> what's your headline, sir? "markets down, party trade blame as fiscal cliff talks fail." >> you're so gloom and doom. >> republicans don't see themselves as unruly kids and don't see obama as a wise principal, contrary to what ari was saying earlier. >> what do you think it's going to take at this juncture to get a deal done? >> i think you have to have the president show some leadership and show an actual balanced package that includes some entitlement reforms and have the muscle with his own caucus to bring that about. >> do you think it would be a advantageous to do it himself or leave it to the staffers? >> i think republicans in congress work better with vice president biden than president obama in these sorts of negotiations. >> america's happy warrior could be ruled out. what's your headline, good sir? >> unfortunately like past headlines, "in a jobs cr
's threatened by this. such a missile could reach alaska, hawaii, south korea or japan. that's one of the reasons that all of those countries have taken precautionary measures, the u.s. sending four warships to the region, south korea has a warship observing all the events. japan activating its anti-missile shield. the plan launched in provocation in direct defines of the security council. the state department said we have the un security council statement which strongly condemned their last launch and made clear that the council was determined to take action if there is a further launch and we stand by that, end quote. just what action the un might take remains unclear but the tightening of sanctions is almost a sure bet and given that much of the technology for north korea's missile program is imported, a stricter ban of technology sports from around the world may be in the offing. >> shepard: technical problems is the reason given for the delay. it sounds like a lot of analysts believe that could be a cover. >> reporter: that's what couple of south korean analysts are telling th
pretty positive the president was flying back from his hawaii vacation, republicans seemed to be in the mood to try to get this done, and they could bridge this gap. but you know, my conversations with some of the republican leaders is that not much was accomplished today. and as you know, john, the clock is ticking. what are we, 72 hours away from going over that cliff? i'm not sure this is going to get resolved right new. looks like we may go into january without a deal. >> stephen moore saying we're going off the cliff. we've got new details on the plan, the president's scaled-down proposal. here's what's on the table. extend the current tax rates for 98% of americans, incomes up to $250,000. extend unemployment benefits, that's an important point. not being talked about enough. extending the alternative minimum tax patch. prevents cuts in payments to doctors who treatment medicare payments. -- patients. would this scaled-down proposal save us from economic disaster? >> we've done a tremendous amount of damage to ourselves, embarrassing ourselves around the world. we're
. he came back from hawaii, he had to do something. so they had a meeting. if you don't have new offers you don't have progress. you did have a frank exchange but they in in the business of macking a deal there is no real evidence that they moved. so i remain that we will probely go oferm then once that happens then all sort of things start a lining. speaker boehner gets reelect as speaker t is easier to pass a tax cut than do it beforehand. everyone goes crazy outside so there is more pressure. so i still think it's much more likely that not much has happened. >> what do you think? looking busy, that's all that is happening right now? >> i think that it was a chance, on january 3rd, he has the votes from the republican congress, land there is no reason to think doesn't, then will be re-elected to peaker of the house. but if 17 republicans and we know there are more than that number of rebels, iconoclasts in that esteemed body o decide to not vote then john boehner will leave it in limb above. but i think once he is re-elected as speaker on the 3rd of january w a new congress, first of
